The things we do for the Youth of Ramsbottom
On the 22nd June Ramsbottom Rotary hosted the annual “Youth Speaks” competition at  the Red Hall Hotel. Family, friends and teaching staff supported the  participating schools, Holcombe Brook and Edenfield primary as they entered teams of year 6  pupils to present their favoured topics. The teams of three were, Chairperson, Speaker, and proposer of   Vote of thanks. The speaker has six minutes in which to present their chosen topic. The topics were, Roller Coasters, The Robinwood Activity Centre, Heroes in Sport and finally Nelson Mandela. 
The two  Adjudicators former Head Teachers Frank Bennett of Woodhey High School and Jon Lovgreen of Castle Brook High School both spoke highly of the quality of the teams, their research and presentation was a credit to both the teams and the schools.  
Rotary’s aim is to give the pupils an opportunity to prepare,  present and deliver to an adult audience.
